Tips to Keep Commercial Water Damage from Affecting Production Lines in Andover Factories
SERVPRO Technicians Remediate Water Damage as Well as Providing Prevention Services to Factories and Businesses
Businesses outside of the Andover area and your employees and their families depend on your factory and its operations. Without your facility, the state of workers' jobs, the finished goods produced, and even your suppliers suffer.
Factories must retain high levels of cleanliness, but commercial water damage in Andover can quickly thwart the best efforts in maintaining a sufficiently clean environment. Many factories have protocols in place to help maintain equipment and general safety. There are additional activities which managers can implement to help ensure the risks presented by the presence of unwanted water remain minimized.
If your factory is one of those specializing in food products or high tech, you know that quality controls regularly include the environment as well as the components used in the finished product. Water, while needed by virtually every living creature on the planet, quickly damages non-living things and does so rather effortlessly. Undesired living microorganisms such as mold and mildew thrive in environments where water persists, adding significantly to the trouble.
SERVPRO employees have seen the worst examples of the damage caused by water, in many different kinds of settings. We know firsthand that prevention is both easier and less expensive than cleanup and mitigation after damage affects a facility. This is why we continue to provide assessments and other preventative measures to local businesses.
In locations where dehumidification units already exist, maintenance of these items on a regular schedule can prevent situations from accelerating into trouble with inventory and finished products alike. If humidity is high enough to cause condensation to accumulate on cold surfaces, increasing the rate at which the existing dehumidifiers run can help resolve the problem. Attention to water meters during shut down periods can help you discover any otherwise invisible leaks in your water lines. You might not be able to do so during times of regular operations.
However, in both of these examples, locating the source of the water can lead to more permanent solutions. Adding water-proofing barriers or fixing leaks wherever they occur can resolve the issue more effectively than continually ridding your factory of the moisture by keeping it from ever entering.
